This is also open to Visual and Performing Artists, or those studying anthropology, acting, creative writing, or yoga
Winners will be paid to be in a documentary film shot within an hour of your home, or ideally LA, Sedona, Ojai, or Joshua Tree.

If you are a visual artist, your work may be sold in our gallery before and after, but any art created during the retreat is destroyed just after you make it to do a ritual-ceremonial purging.
The subject is a person facing divorce. You are there to listen, model accetpance, create art, and then burn it.

You simply pay attention. You listen.
Then, you create art out of the subject's sadness, loneliness, and frustraiton.
Then burn it and spread the ashes on yourself and the subject.

You also have training in a variety of techniques including Karpman's Drama Triangle.

This role requires nudity:

Role Description: 

Nudity is not required, but indicate if you would use it? Would you be nude? Would the subject be nude? ARE both of you nude at the same time or different times? Now, some artists do not want to be paid so they don't have to destroy their art.  That can be pre-arranged, but if so, indicate below this interest. Lastly, are you free to Zoom with the subject on Tuesdays or Wednesdays from now until November?

Media required from applicants:

Production / Rehearsal / Audition dates: 
December 21-30 (you won't be needed every day, nor for 8 hours each day). Ideally, you can stay at the residence in your own bedroom or share with another same-sex facilitator, but our goal is to find a luxury Airbnb near your home. As this is the Xmas holiday, we may not have this option and may be near Josua Tree, Ojai, Sedona, or other location within 4 hours of LA. There may be final interviews done in-person in late November if you are available. This is all filmed, but the crew will wear masks or we will be outside.
Listing Deadline:
